Mr. GORDON:

The number of Canadian born persons, still British subjects returning to Canada from the United States, after having taken up residence in the United States, is as follows:
Fiscal year 1930-1931 26.811
" " 1931-1932
17,691" " 1932-1933
16,32010 months ended January, 1934. 7,619
The following table shows the number of Canadian bom persons returning from other countries than the United States, but the department is unable to show how many of these returned after having taken up residence abroad; it is thought that the number of such is very small and that practically the entire movement is made up of Canadians who have been visiting abroad:
Fiscal year 1930-1931 13,989
" " 1931-1932
11,020" " 1932-1933
11,79610 months ended January, 1934. 10,090
